It's been a while since I've updated the blog with the Shoot Share Inspire theme, but we're still going! This week's theme is Water, so join us by tagging your #water themed images with #shoot_share_inspire on Instagram or share it on our Facebook Page.
To get you started, here is a recent photo from our local beach. How's the water where you are?
Our Pre-Christmas Sale begins on November 1st, and this year you can only access it through our VIP program.
The number of people I follow on Instagram is really starting to expand and I am now getting a lot more variety in my feed which is great for inspiration. These are a few accounts that I have especially enjoyed this month. I would love to hear a few of your favourites too, so leave me a comment at the end and I will definitely check them out.
Someone I have been following for a while is Fiona aka @thedizzylimits. She has a pretty, bright feed full of macros, with a small dose of small children thrown in! One of the other things that I love about Fiona is that she's just so friendly, and it's nice to have a bit of 'social' in your social media!
Light, bright and beautiful - you can find her here.
If your four legged friend is also your favourite photography subject, you might like to check out @madeleine_imogen. Madeleine is a pet photographer based in Tasmania, Australia, and she certainly brings out the cuteness and personality in these little guys. They say to never work with animals or children, so I suppose that makes photographers in general some of the most rebellious (crazy?) people out there! I love the dog with his head cocked to the side on the top left!
You can find her on Instagram here.
A year or so ago I spent a bit of time on Google+ (is anyone still there?) and I discovered a landscape photographer called William Patino (@william_patino). At the time, William was taking amazing photos of his local area of Woolongong, Australia, in between working as a tradesman. This year however, he gave that up to work as a photographer full time, and he also now runs his own photography workshops, often in gorgeous overseas locations.
He first picked up a camera in 2012.
Check him out on Instagram here, or his website.
Last Sunday night I was scrolling through Instagram when I came across a page from Finland. The colours in the top of the feed were mainly browns and greens, with a mixture of landscapes and animals. There is something so foreign to me about the landscapes with Nordic snow and the forests and it's just so fascinating to look at. There are also some lovely captures of the Northern Lights which I have always dreamed of seeing, and look at that amazing image of that bird eating out of the hand!
When I looked to the top of the feed, I was astounded to see that there were only 430 followers!
Malin (@maailmalin) can be found here on Instagram.
You have to check out this feed, that follower count is way too low for the quality of the photos!
Instagram is such a great place to draw inspiration and connect with artists of similar (and completely different) aesthetics. Leave a comment to let me know who else I should be following.
